HPG-1799A-1 – The Laken
My husband & I began looking at floor plans of houses in November 2008. We had spent over 15 years in our older home, which already existed when we bought our property in 1994. As we watched the years pass, we would occasionally walk to the back of our 10 acres and discuss building a home one day. This was not only an American dream, but our dream, too.
We had been through literally a couple hundred plans when I came across the House Plan Gallery on the internet. I emailed only one choice to my husband (who was away on an oilrig on a 14 day hitch). Immediately, he loved the house and the plans. When he arrived home many days later, he phoned the guys over at House Plan Gallery to inquire about the timing in ordering the plans. Much to our surprise, they responded that we could “just come by and pick them up”. It turns out that their business was just across town!
We absolutely love everything about this plan including the open floor plan, big porch, and overall curb appeal…
After praying about the timing (economy) of building our new home, this was quite a sign! The plans were ordered February 5,2009, My neices’ birthday. We have since then built our house and moved in on October 9, 2009, my fathers’ birthday! Dates easily remembered!
It’s funny, after so many years in the older home we thought we would “miss” it, but after moving into our dream home, it’s like we never lived anywhere else!
Thank you House Plan Gallery for playing a part in our dream. We absolutely love our new home!
